On the Real Housewives of Atlanta, we've all seen the drama and antics of six women interacting both professionally and personally to make must-see TV. But Attorney Phaedra Parks is not your typical reality TV diva. She's been managing law partner at The Parks Group, P.C., for a decade, and has represented the likes of Bobby Brown, Jermaine Dupri and Ludacris, among others.


The mother, entrepreneur, and litigator, was president of the Gate City Bar Association, and actively sits on boards for organizations including the American Bar Association and the University of Georgia. One can't have all of this under her (designer) belt without knowing a thing -- or three--- about networking. 


On the heels of last night's episode, we caught up with Parks for her quick and dirty quips on making quality connections. ---Janell Hazelwood
